These are great end-of-the-semester (or year) projects when you have to
keep them busy for a few days. Two books that are useful: Paper Movie
Machines by Budd Wentz, published by troubadour press (lower case); and
Making "Movies" Without a Camera by Lafe Locke, published by Betterway
Books. I gave a workshop at NAEA a few years ago where we made several
of these gadgets.
